New Real Estate Magazine Launch by Beasley

June 28, 2013

In DC’s upscale world, green is the color of a famous social book that lists power players and movers-and-shakers – international, national and those more locally famous. That is, green seems to be -- to some insiders --a color that denotes “power” and social standing.

With that in mind, green also is the cover color of the new Beasley Real Estate magazine, which lists great properties for sale and gives potential buyers an idea of what’s out there to purchase and the price tags.

The attractive magazine, called “Home,” was launched Thursday night at a party held at the energetic Shaw’s Tavern on Florida Avenue NW in the hot environs of young people and the up-and-coming set.

The first edition, Summer 2013, showcases gorgeous listings in D.C. and close-in communities that Beasley currently has in its portfolio.  In addition, the magazine highlights some of Beasley’s recent sales. Each issue will be available online and in a limited print edition.

Three hundred first editions were printed.  They’re free.

“It’s the most incredible property publication in Washington,” said Jim Bell, founder and managing partner at Beasley RE.  “Our magazine says ‘Washington’ and it speaks to Washington,” said Bell. “Home is for friends and clients.”

Upstairs at Shaw’s Tavern, 100 or so well-wishers munched on gourmet pizzas, chips and other tasty morsels for the launch party.

Politicos, journalists, business leaders, and socialites descended on K Street Wednesdy evening to support world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Tina Alster as she launched W for MEN, the world’s first clinical dermatology practice dedicated to advanced laser and other skin treatments for men.

Dr. Terrence Keaney, a board-certified dermatologist with specialized interest and training in the specific cosmetic dermatologic needs of men, is spearheading the men’s center under the auspices of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery(WIDLS).

“By recognizing the differences in male and female anatomy and physiology, W for MEN was conceived to provide an appropriately male centric approach in the treatment and care of men’s skin,” said Dr. Alster, the founding director of the Institute. She further adds, “Dr. Keaney brings a wealth of knowledge to support our commitment to providing the highest level of care for our male patients.”

This unique area of focus is evident immediately upon entering the facility -an environment of inviting privacy and masculine appeal. The range of services offered also reflects the dermatologic issues specific to men of all ages, including laser and other treatments for sun damage, rosacea, acne, scars, tattoos, hair removal, hair restoration, body sculpting and excessive sweating.

Attendees sipped Prosecco and noshed on hors d’oeuvres as they toured the new W for MEN facility and learned about the various treatment options available to men.
